Adamawa election: PDP enjoins members to support Fintiri

09 September 2014, 15:33

Abuja - The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Monday urged its members in Adamawa to support the state Acting Governor, Ahmed Fintiri, to ensure his victory in the October 11 governorship by-election.

The PDP National Publicity, Olisa Metuh, made the call in a statement on Monday in Abuja.

Fintiri won the party`s ticket to contest the by-election with over 600 votes at its primaries on Sept. 6 in a contest with five other aspirants.

The statement congratulated Fintiri on his emergence as the party’s candidate and other aspirants who contested the ticket with him, for demonstrating spirit of sportsmanship.

It also commended them for their commitment to the party throughout the nomination process and for keeping with the ideals and visions of the party and its founding fathers.

The statement added that the party`s national leadership was satisfied with the level of camaraderie and sense of purpose that characterised the primary election’’.

It further praised the delegates at the primaries and major stakeholders in the state for the orderly manner they conducted themselves during the exercise.

The statement, however, attributed the success of the exercise to the spirit of oneness within the party`s fold in Adamawa.

It also attributed the peaceful conduct of the primaries to insistence by the party national leadership that strict adherence to the tenets of internal democracy must be followed.

The statement also congratulated its candidate, Dr Shem Nuhu, for emerging victorious at the Niger East Senatorial by-election.

It said the outcome of the Niger election confirmed the popularity of the PDP among the people at the grass roots.

The statement stressed that Niger remained a stronghold of the PDP and urged its members in the state to continue to work hard.

This, it said, became necessary to ensure that the party remained pre-eminent ahead of 2015 general elections.
